Homework Help: chem

Posted by hannah on Saturday, December 11, 2010 at 9:03am.

Some sulfuric acid is spilled on a lab bench. It can be neutralized by sprinkling sodium bicarbonate on it and then mopping up the resultant solution.

The sodium bicarbonate reacts with sulfuric acid as follows.
2 NaHCO3(s) + H2SO4(aq) --> Na2SO4(aq) + 2 H2O(l) + 2 CO2(g)

Sodium bicarbonate is added until the fizzing due to the formation of CO2(g) stops. If 34 mL of 6.0 M H2SO4 was spilled, what is the minimum mass of NaHCO3 that must be added to the spill to neutralize the acid?


i got 5.7 but it said:

"Your response differs from the correct answer by more than 10%. Double check your calculations."
